Introduction to Chromium-Carbide Cr3C2 Pulp

Chromium carbide

This inorganic compound has the molecular structure Cr3C2 (molecular weight 180). It’s a grey powder with a homobic system. A =2.821; B =5.52, D =11.46. The melting point for this powder is 1890 while the boiling point at 3800 is 3800. The micro-Vickers hardness, load 50g is 2700kg/rnrn2, the thermal expansion coefficient of 10.3×10-6/K.

It exhibits good wear resistance and corrosion resistance. It’s a type cermet. Due to its exceptional high-temperature properties, it’s widely used in thermal spraying materials for metal protection processes and as an additive to the cemented carbid industry.

Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Pulp has Physical Properties

Many excellent properties of chrome carbide are: strong chemical stability; high-temperature toughness, thermal hardness and acid and/or alkali resistance resistance; wear resistance; high melting point. Chromium carbide can also be used as an inhibitor to control grain growth in cemented carbide.

Furthermore, chromium carbide is a strong abrasion resistant of explosive bonding agent additives. It is used extensively in the aerospace industry, electronics industry, high temperature resistant coating, aerospace and other industries.

Chromium carbide is a common surface coating in cutting tools. Chromium carbide, an important precipitated component in Fe-Cr–c alloy, is what makes this material very durable.

Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Pulver Preparation

Carbonization of metal chromium powder:

A 325 mesh metal chromium powder was obtained by grinding carbon Black at 13.5%64% (mass) ratio. (More than the theoretical combined carbon contents of 11.33%). It is then dried mixed with a Ball Mill to make it. Use 1%-3% stearic as the forming oil. Do not pressure mold more than 1 T/cm2. Pressurized molding powder is used to mold graphite disks and crucibles.

It is 3Cr + Cr2C – Cr3C2

Chromium carbide Cr3C2 powder applications

1. Useful for carbide additives, such as the tungsten carbide based carbide grains refiner, so that they can be used in mining and mechanical processing.

2. These can also be used in welding additives. This welding rod is made from chromium carbide and can be used for surfacing welding of certain mechanical equipment such as jaw plates, coal mills, ball mills, etc. This can increase the equipment’s service life by severalfold.

3. Useful for thermal spraying metals to protect their surfaces.
